(WWLP) – Rachel’s Table is adding seven drivers, three food donors and two new agencies to its food rescue and redistribution program of the Jewish Federation of Western Massachusetts.
The food rescue program is expanding its daily program into Hampshire County which include, three new food donors in Hadley, Amherst and Northampton, and two new agencies in Amherst and Northampton.
“One of our main goals at Rachel’s Table has been to fund programs that support food security throughout the Pioneer Valley,” says Jodi Falk, Rachel’s Table director. “While we have had a presence in Hampshire County through our gleaning program, we have now been able to expand and fill in the hunger gaps in this region by making sure local food goes to local people and not to landfill.”
